Selenocystine $([Sec]_2)$ and aryl-substituted selenocysteine (Sec) derivatives are synthesized, starting from commercially available amino acid L-serine. These compounds are characterized by a number of analytical techniques such as NMR $(^1H, ^1^3C and ^7^7Se)$ and TOF mass spectroscopy. This study reveals that the introduction of amino/imino substituents capable of interacting with selenium may stabilize the Sec derivatives. This study further suggests that the oxidation-elimination reactions in Sec derivatives could be used for the generation of biologically active selenols having internally stabilizing substituents.
